When an actor is too famous, looks too distinct or sounds too distinct to disguise their identity from the audience, cast someone to be the mask; in other words, bring on a different actor to play the character whenever they are wearing their disguise.

This way (one can only hope) the audience won't guess the secret, at least not until you want them to.

Although this is often done for villains, it is not limited to them.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime]]
* The Anime adaptation of ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' does this. To make the reveal that the pretty new girl in town is [[spoiler:not ActionGirl Nina, but Johan, her HalfIdenticalTwin (who is also the series' BigBad) in a disguise]] more shocking, the studio used [[spoiler:Nina's voice actress]] to play [[spoiler:Johan]] whenever they don this look. This is done both in the Japanese version and in the English dub.
* In the English dub of ''Anime/{{Noein}}'', [[spoiler:Creator/RichardEpcar plays the title character, while Creator/CrispinFreeman plays Karasu, an alternate future version of Yuu, the show's main protagonist. When Noein removes his disguise and reveals himself to also be an alternate future version of Yuu (being almost exactly like Karasu, albeit with more evil intentions), he's suddenly voiced by Karasu's voice-actor Creator/CrispinFreeman. Averted in the original Japanese, where it's SignificantDoubleCasting all the way.]]
* The unnamed Shinigami in the first ''Manga/DeathNote Relight'' special. The ending hints that [[spoiler:he might be the reincarnation of Light Yagami, but he isn't voiced by Light's [=VA=] in either the English or the Japanese versions]]
* In ''Anime/GurrenLagann'', the narrator is revealed at the end to be [[spoiler:an older Simon]], but in both English and Japanese they have different [=VAs=]...except in the epilogue, which is how it's revealed in the first place.
* In ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast'', Akira is informed about the Selacao by Hajime Hiura, Selacao number 5, who recreates for Akira the circumstances of his recruitment by Mr. Outside. On the recording, Mr. Outside's voice is the same as that of Hiura. This makes some sense as the series raises the possibility that any of the Selacao could be Mr. Outside/"The Supporer" and not know it due to LaserGuidedAmnesia. [[spoiler: and the movies clarify that Hiura and Mr. Outside are different people]]. Hiura was recreating his experience, we're even shown him with the phone.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Pain has six bodies, and all but the female one speak with the voice one of them had when he was alive. [[spoiler:Then it turns out, despite what we were initially lead to believe, he is not really in control either, he's just another corpse [[PeoplePuppets controlled by another person entirely.]]]]
** When [[spoiler:Tobi]] pretends to be [[spoiler:Madara Uchiha]], he is played by the same actor who would voice the later-shown real person. This is as much this trope as the creators of the anime not knowing that said character was a fake when the part was cast, but makes sense because it's established even the lowest ranking ninja are able to imitate voices flawlessly when using the Shapeshifter Technique (which also fits into this trope).
* The Japanese version of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' plays with this trope with the Masked Fighter. Judging by height and appearance, she is [[PaperThinDisguise very obviously Genkai]]...but then she speaks with the voice of Creator/MegumiHayashibara, causing confusion even ''before'' [[spoiler:she's revealed to be a young woman. She is in fact Genkai, but using her technique reverts the body to its prime condition.]]
* Katsuhito Masaki, from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'', in all the various incarnations of the series, has his own voice actor, apart from his alter ego of Yosho.
* In ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'', when supposed time traveler John Titor's text is read aloud he's voiced by Hiroshi Tsuchida in Japanese and Patrick Seitz, which hides the fact that he's actually [[spoiler:Amane Suzuha, who just to add even more of a mask is in reality female]].
* Similarly used in ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' during scenes where characters' screen names in chatrooms are given voice overs, which doubles as a case of {{GIRL}} for one character in particular, especially since the actors are shuffled at several points just to keep things ambiguous. It turns out [[spoiler:"Setton" is Celty, usually played by a male actor when the character herself is female, "Taro Tanaka" is Mikado, "Bacula" is Masaomi; "Saika" is at first Saika-infected individuals then changes to Anri; and the main perpetrator of being a G.I.R.L., "Kanra," is Izaya]].
* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' does this whenever Kaito Kid appears. Being the MasterOfDisguise, he usually spends most of the arcs that feature him impersonating someone before he reveals his identity, and often times it's even as one of the main characters. This means that, among others, Creator/WakanaYamazaki, Creator/AkiraKamiya, and Creator/KanetoShiozawa have voiced him up until TheReveal. The exception is whenever he impersonates Shinichi, since both of them are already voiced by Creator/KappeiYamaguchi.
* ''Anime/LupinIII'': Lupin (and other characters) are usually voiced by the character they're disguised as. Occasionally lapsing into lines with their regular voice actor, reminding the audience who it really is.
** Special note for ''Anime/LupinFamilyAllStars'', where the disguise of the "man in the iron mask" is voiced by Creator/ChikaoOhtsuka, who voiced Zenigata in the 4:3 version of the pilot film and Goemon in the 1971 "Green Jacket" series. Creator/MakioInoue and Creator/GoroNaya were voicing the Goemon and Zenigata characters, respectively.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film (Animated)]]
* In the film version of ''Film/AScannerDarkly'', Mark Turner plays "Hank", who is later revealed to be [[spoiler:Winona Ryder's character, Donna]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'', SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker (Creator/MarkHamill) is actually revealed to be [[spoiler:Tim Drake (Dean Stockwell) under some sort of Sci Fi DemonicPossession]]. To make it more surprising, there is [[spoiler:a RedHerring suspect who both [[PaperThinDisguise looks a lot like the Joker and is also voiced by Mark Hamill]]]].
** The writers of [=DCAU=] Batman '''[=LOVE=]''' this trope. In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'', the titular Phantasm is initially voiced by Stacy Keach, who also plays [[spoiler:Carl Beaumont]]. This is a red herring, however, as the Phantasm turns out to actually be [[spoiler:Andrea Beaumont - Carl's daughter - using a voice modulator to sound masculine]].
** And also in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman'', where Kyra Sedgewick voices the titular Batwoman, but none of the suspects for the identity. [[spoiler: This turns out to be because ALL of the suspects are the Batwoman, using a voice modulator to sound the same]].
* ''WeAreTheStrange'' does this. It's possible that the voice that speaks thorugh the [=SinisteRRR=] game (which is actually the voice from {{Sinistar}}), is also [[spoiler:[=HIM=] BigBad]] who is played by M dot Strange (the director), However, the film is [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible really really confusing]], so it's hard to tell if this really is an example or not.
** For all the viewer knows, [=SinisteRRR=] is [[spoiler:just TheDragon]] and is simply repeating a mantra that [[spoiler:[=HIM=]]] taught it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film (Live Action)]]
* ''Film/TheAdventuresOfCaptainMarvel'': To keep audiences from figuring out which of the scientists is secretly the BigBad, the studio brought in Gerald Mohr to do the BigBad's voice all the way up to TheReveal. Really comes in handy when [[spoiler: the scientists start getting killed off and the # of possible suspects is eventually narrowed down to just two]].
* Spoofed in ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'', where [[spoiler:Creator/WoodyAllen's character Jimmy]] is revealed to be Dr. Noah, the Head of Smersh despite his voice not even remotely sounding like Valentine Dyall, who voiced the doctor all the way up until that point.
* In ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', [[spoiler:Anthony Perkins]] doesn't play Norma Bates until the very end of the film. Up until that point, the role was assumed by several different actors.
* In the 2007 David Fincher movie, ''Film/{{Zodiac}}'', no less than 3 different actors (Richmond Arquette, Bob Stephenson, and John Lacy) are used to play the titular killer (always seen either wearing a mask or as a silhouette). Late in the film, a potential suspect is revealed and is played by Charles Fleischer. Despite his looking nothing like the 3 Zodiac actors, the film never 100 % clears him. The last we see of him, the possibility that he '''could''' be the killer is still somewhat open.
** Also, John Caroll Lynch plays Arthur Leigh Allen, probably the most famous Zodiac suspect. However, Lynch matches the basic body type of the 3 Zodiac actors, so he's not as dramatic or as shocking of an example as Fleisher is.
* In ''Film/TheUsualSuspects'', Keyser Soze is played by multiple people before being [[spoiler: revealed as Kevin Spacey's character]]. This is more a case of TheRashomon overlapping with UnreliableNarrator, though.
* A deleted scene in ''Secret Window'' (that was not from [[spoiler:Creator/JohnnyDepp]]'s perspective) shows [[spoiler: Shooter (played by a very recognizeable John Turturro) starting a fire. Due to TheReveal, this means that, instead of playing Shooter, Turturro is actually playing Depp's character. The director thought having Turturro appear in a scene with an objective [=POV=] wouldn't make sense in this context, thus the scene was removed from the film. The only scenes where Turturro appears in the final cut are from Depp's perspective]].
* A twist near the end of ''Film/DungeonsAndDragonsWrathOfTheDragonGod'' is that [[spoiler:the old mage has been killed and impersonated by Klaxx]]. Until [[TheReveal he is unmasked]] (both to the cast and the audience), he is played by [[spoiler:the old mage]]'s actor.
* In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', Pat Welsh voices the Bounty Hunter, Boushh, who later turns out to be [[spoiler:Leia (Carrie Fisher)]] in disguise.
** At least two foreign language dubs of ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' and ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' did this with Darth Sidious, probably because they didn't know better, even if [[spoiler:Palpatine being Sidious]] was revealed in the novelization for ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
* In ''VelvetGoldmine'', [[spoiler:Jonathan Rhys Meyers' character, Brian Slade, reinvents himself as a music star by the name of Tommy Stone; a different actor is used to play Tommy Stone in order to hide the surprise]].
* A vocal variation of this was done in the ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies. In the scene where [[spoiler: Gandalf reveals himself to Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli in Fangorn Forest, they took both Creator/IanMcKellen and Creator/ChristopherLee's voices saying the exact same lines and masked them over each other to hide just which of them it was.]] According to DVD bonus material, the two of them were asked to imitate one another for at least some of those lines.
* Every Creator/DarioArgento film features shots where we only see [[HandOfDeath the villain's hands]], which are actually [[InsertCameo those of Argento himself]].
* In ''Film/HighPlainsDrifter'', there is a deliberate ambiguity as to the identity of the Stranger played by Clint Eastwood. He might be the brother of the murdered marshal, or there might be a supernatural explanation including but not limited to him being the ghost of the marshal, Satan, or an angel. When the marshal's murder is shown in flashbacks, he's played by Buddy van Horn, a stuntman who doubles for Eastwood and looks a lot like him (but different enough to aid the ambiguity).
* In ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', the actor providing the voice for [[spoiler: Moriarty]] is uncredited, and it is unknown who it is (TheOtherWiki indicates rumors of it being Brad Pitt, although an Ed Tolputt is credited as "Anonymous Man", so it might be him). In the sequel film, the character is played by Jared Harris.
* In ''Film/KamenRiderXSuperSentaiSuperHeroTaisen'', Series/KamenRiderDecade and [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokai Red]] disguise themselves as [[Series/KamenRider Kamen Rider 1]] and [[Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger Akaranger]] respectively, which is somewhat consistent with their usual powers (though Decade had never transformed into a Showa-era rider prior to that). What isn't consistent however, is that they also take on the ''voices'' of Kamen Rider 1 and Akaranger (as well as Decade copying Rider 1's belt, with the Decadriver only appearing when he reveals himself).
* Keeping with the theme of misdirection, ''Film/ThePrestige'' managed to avert this and still completely surprise everyone. [[spoiler:Turns out that Christian Bale plays identical twins, Albert and Frederick Borden, but both of them alternate being constantly hidden under a disguise, and never really say much or even stay in shot. When Bale without the disguise is in a shot with his disguised twin, a double is used. Thanks to a lack of dialogue for the disguised "Fallon" and his completely unremarkable nature and behaviour, no one suspected he had a secret at all, but then this is Christian Bale we're talking about.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Used for a plot twist near the end of ''[[Creator/MontagueRhodesJames A Warning To The Curious]]'' where the ghost (John Kearney) tricks both the protagonist and the audience by disguising as [[spoiler:Dr. Black]], and, for that scene, is appropriately played by [[spoiler:Black's actor, Clive Swift]].
* The first appearance of [[spoiler:Commander Sela]] in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' [[spoiler:in the episode where Geordi is kidnapped and brainwashed by Romulans]] had her standing in the shadows, and played by a different actress (although [[spoiler:Denise Crosby]] did provide the voice). Notably, [[spoiler:Sela has black hair in this first appearance -- at the time of filming they hadn't settled on making Sela blonde to emphasise her half-human heritage.]]
* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' does this a lot. The human and MonsterOfTheWeek forms of the bad guy usually have the same actor...except when ThePowersThatBe need to hide who the bad guy is. Never an in-story reason for the voice changing happening sometimes but not other times.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial ''Remembrance of the Daleks'' [[spoiler:the Renegade Daleks use a young girl as the "imagination" component in their battle computer. When seated in the computer's chair, she is voiced by a Davros-impersonating John Leeson--the chair is very Dalek-like in its appearance, and the voice fooled viewers into thinking that Davros was leading the Renegades.]]
* ''Series/FreshPrinceOfBelAir'': The episode "Fresh Prince: The Movie" had Will tell about John "Fingers" O'Neill (played by Brad Garrett) coming after Will and the Banks family after Will witnesses a mob killing. [[spoiler: It was all a BatmanGambit by Will and Carlton to hustle Jazz out of his poker money. While it works, Fingers returns to where Will is, and Will runs and screams in terror. "Fingers" reveals he was really Jazz in disguise this time, out for a little payback for Will hustling him.]]
* ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' in what may have been a simple recast, had archenemy Root played by one actress in the character's debut, with the Camera only showing glimpses from odd angles, or her hands while typing... in the season Finale she was played by a second actress [[spoiler: Root pretends to be a [=PoI=] to get close to Finch, as both actresses are fairly well known it is more likely intentional.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* In the Creator/SandraBullock episode of ''MuppetsTonight'', the MadBomber who [[Film/{{Speed}} threatened to blow up the studio if the ratings dropped below fifty]] was a blue Muppet voiced by Jerry Nelson. At the end of the episode, the Bomber pulls off "his" entire Muppet form as if it were a mask, and is revealed to be Sandra Bullock herself.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Radio]]
* [=AREM=] (voiced by Bob Lutrell) is an alias [[spoiler:Robert Mitchell]] (voiced by Steve Burns) uses in AdventuresInOdyssey. Justified in that [=AREM=] is a computer voice [[spoiler:Robert]] uses to hide his identity.
* The main [[DancingBear gimmick]] of the ''BigFinishDoctorWho'' audio "The Maltese Penguin" is that the {{Shapeshifter}} main character, Frobisher, takes on the form of the Sixth Doctor throughout the majority of the story, meaning most of his dialogue is performed by Sixth Doctor actor Colin Baker imitating Frobisher's exaggerated [[FakeAmerican Boston accent]]. It's especially obvious that it was done for the fun of it by the fact that no confusion between Frobisher and the Doctor ever comes up - everyone immediately knows who he is and the actual Doctor is comfortable with it, and even shows up as a DropInCharacter TalkingToHimself at times.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Ingeniously played with in the stage version of ''Film/WitnessForTheProsecution''. [[spoiler:The cast list includes "The Other Woman," and the audience is led to believe that this is the old woman who gives evidence to the lawyers. Nope; the old woman is Romaine in disguise, and is played by that actress, while "The Other Woman" appears several seconds after that reveal. She's Leonard's lover.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The [=RED=] Spy when he's disguised as [[spoiler:[=BLU=] Scout]] in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'''s "Meet The Spy" video is voiced by the latter's VA until TheReveal. In-game, when a Spy is disguised, he also sounds identical to his disguise due to this trope.
* A very odd inversion occurs in ''{{Myst}} IV'': Revelation. Pretty early on, it's established that [[spoiler:Sirrus]] (Brian Wrench) is still evil and that you'll ultimately have to fight him. While this is technically true, by the time you face off with him he's now [[GenderBender disguised]] as [[spoiler:[[DistressedDamsel Yeesha]]]] and is thus now being played by [[spoiler:Yeesha's actress, Juliette Gosselin]]. It's also notable in that TheReveal is done without the non-mask actor being shown.
* In the first IcewindDale game, John Kassir plays [[spoiler:Belhifet]], while David Ogden Stiers plays [[spoiler:the narrator, who is later revealed to be Belhifet]]. Then, for good measure, once TheReveal is made, the character breaks into a fit of demonic laughter and (for his remaining 20 seconds of screentime) is played by Creator/JimCummings.
* Another Bioware title, the first BaldursGate game, does this too. When [[spoiler:Sarevok]], first approaches you as his alias, ''Koveras'', he just uses one of the stock voices you've already heard several times earlier in the game ("You need something, stranger?").
** However, if you're fast enough to click on him as he is leaving, you'll hear Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson's very distinct voice instead.
* Done in-universe in ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople: [[StylisticSuck Dangeresque 3]]: [[ColonCancer The Criminal Projective]]''. Strong Sad plays five informants, one of which is actually Perducci (The King of Town) in disguise, but Strong Sad continues playing the role until TheReveal.
* In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank: Locked and Loaded'', the thief is voiced by Rodger Bumpass. That is, until his voice modulator falls off and he is revealed to be [[spoiler: Angela Cross]].
* PlayedForLaughs in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}},'' where the thin, agile Phantom turns out to be the morbidly obese [[StrawCritic inner critic]] Jasper rather than the more obvious suspect, Becky. Of course, since this all takes place [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind in a crazy woman's brain]] this is somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]].
* In ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'' [[spoiler:Atlas and Frank Fontaine are voiced by two different people]].
** And in ''Videogame/BioshockInfinite'', [[spoiler: Booker and Comstock]] have different actors, despite the fact [[spoiler: they're alternate reality versions of the same person. Somewhat justified since Comstock is an older version of Booker]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novel]]
* In the full-voiced PlayStation3 remake of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', the "Man of 19 Years Ago" is voiced by [[spoiler:Creator/DaisukeOno, Battler's voice actor]]. However, the Man of 19 years ago is [[spoiler:[[ManySpiritsInsideOfOne Yasu]], whose [[SplitPersonality split personalities]] are Shannon (voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya), Kanon (voiced by Creator/YuuKobayashi), Lion (voiced by Creator/AyakoKawasumi) and Beatrice (voiced by Creator/SayakaOhara). That's right, this series has '''five''' examples of this trope... and all of them are about the same person!]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Very much played for laughs in [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/lappynapped.html this]] ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' cartoon, where [[spoiler:Missy Palmer]] voices a character who...turns out to [[spoiler:definitely not be Marzipan]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', Creator/SteveBlum voices the Green Goblin, but not his civilian identity, [[spoiler:Norman Osborn, voiced by Alan Rachins.]] In the final episode [[spoiler:Norman Osborn is revealed to be played by [[MasterOfDisguise the Chameleon]], who is voiced by Creator/SteveBlum.]]
* An episode of ''[[GarfieldAndFriends U.S. Acres]]'' had a character who looked and sounded like Orson Pig (voiced by Creator/GreggBerger), but is later revealed to be [[spoiler:Lanolin (voiced by Julie Payne)]] wearing a mask.
* The episode, "Almost Got 'Im" in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' focused on a meeting among various members of the rogue's gallery as they swap stories. Near the end, it turns out that [[spoiler:Killer Croc is actually Batman in disguise, despite Croc clearly being played by his regular voice actor up until that point]].
* And for a DCAU trifecta, when Superman impersonated Batman in the ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Knight Time", his disguise voice was provided by Creator/KevinConroy. The tongue-in-cheek reason? "[[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Precise muscle control]]."
** And when he says those words to Robin (Tim Drake) in explaining just how he'll get away with impersonating Batman while Batman himself is missing, he does so ''using Robin's voice''. Which creeps Robin right the hell out.
** [[FridgeBrilliance Which makes sense]] when you consider a specific [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech trope that Superman named]]. In that instance, Superman spoke of staying in control and keeping himself in check ''at all times.'' Certainly he's had time to practice what he can actually ''do'' with that control.
** Well, that, and it's a shout-out to the early days, when the explanation for why nobody knew Superman was Clark Kent was that he used "precise muscle control" to re-shape his face.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'':
** the MonsterOfTheWeek (a vampire) is believed to be Daphne's mom. She even has the same VA, Creator/KathSoucie.
** From the same series, the Crybaby Clown, voiced by MarkHamill, is really [[spoiler: Baylon Hotner voiced by Matt Lanter.]]
** Usually the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' villains will have their same voice actor, even when in disguise. There were a few exceptions, in the episode "A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts", when the female gypsy fortune teller (voiced by JuneForay) was revealed to be [[spoiler:a man named Big Bob Oakley (voiced by John Stephenson)]], and on the episode "Scooby's Gold Medal Gambit", the MasterOfDisguise The Chameleon disguises himself as Scooby-Doo at one point in the episode, and his disguised voice was provided by Don Messick instead of his regular voice actor.
** As an effort to be as realistic as possible, ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' played this straight though, with the voice of nearly every monster (that was credited, anyway) played by someone other than the voice of the person in the costume.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' episode "Pranksters", Filburt (voiced by Doug Lawrence) impersonates Rocko's grandmother as an April Fools' Day prank on Rocko and Heffer. When in the disguise, "Granny Rocko" is voiced by Creator/CarlosAlazraqui (essentially doing a cranky, higher-pitched version of his Rocko voice).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has played this straight in "The Great Money Caper" (Grampa Simpson, voiced by Creator/DanCastellaneta, disguises himself by means of a latex mask as a judge, and speaks in a Judge Snyder-esque voice by HarryShearer) and "The Frying Game" (the old lady Homer thought he killed, Mrs. Bellamy, was voiced by Frances Sternhagen, until she [[spoiler:revealed herself to be Carmen Electra in a FullBodyDisguise]]).
** Though to be fair, the Simpsons did avert this a few times, such as when Otto disguised himself as the State Comptroller in "Lisa Gets an 'A'", Harry Shearer (Otto's regular voice actor) still supplied the fake State Comptroller's voice, even though it still sounded radically different from Otto.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' Christmas special, Buster's guardian angel rabbit "Harvey" is voiced by Creator/DanCastellaneta, but at the end we see he is actually BugsBunny in a [[LatexPerfection rubber mask and suit]], voiced by Noel Blanc (the son of MelBlanc!) in this special.
* In the appropriately named ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' episode "Masquerade" five Autobots impersonate the captured Stunticons due to "camouflage paint." Windcharger becomes "Wildrider," Jazz becomes "Dead End," Mirage portays "Drag Strip," "Breakdown" is played by Sideswipe and Optimus Prime mimics "Motormaster." Before they go meet Megatron in disguise, "Drag Strip" is voiced by Creator/FrankWelker and "Motormaster" by Creator/PeterCullen (the respective voice actors of Mirage and Optimus). When in disguise around the Decepticons, "Wildrider" is voiced by his usual voice actor, Terry [=McGovern=], while "Motormaster" is played by Roger C. Carmel, Motormaster's voice actor.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMask'' had a group session where Dr. Neuman had the villains who fought the Mask recount their experiences. However, it's revealed [[spoiler: the real Dr. Neuman was caught in traffic and unable to come, while the Dr. Neuman with them was actually the Mask. Ben Stein voiced Dr. Neuman before the reveal and with a smarm briefly returns as the Mask-as-Dr. Neuman says "Although I play one on TV" (earlier, the Mask admitted he may not be a doctor).]]
* The 1980s ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|1987}}'' used a FreakyFridayFlip to swap the minds of Shredder and Master Splinter in one episode. While they thought in their "real voices" with their appropriate voice actors, they still publicly "spoke in character"--Shredder was still voiced by James Avery and Peter Renaday still voiced Master Splinter.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode "Scorn of the Star Sapphire!", Sapphire is voiced by Vicki Lewis (with an English accent), Carol Ferris is voiced by Rachel Quaintance, and there's also an English-accented reporter who wears purple voiced by Eliza Schneider. [[spoiler: As per the comics, Carol is Sapphire, although she uses the reporter as a decoy.]]
